Thursday announced the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), in partnership with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is accepting applications for FY 2012 Drug Free Communities program grants to support community-based coalitions that organize to prevent youth substance abuse. "Southern West Virginia has been putting Drug Free Community dollars to work, stretching them to their last penny. This new round of funding would allow us to build on that work by sharing and extending the reach of these dollars with the growing recognition just how widespread drug abuse is," said Rahall, a senior member of the Congressional Caucus on Prescription Drug Abuse. "Drug Free Communities coalitions can support a unified effort a community needs to help solve its youth substance use problems with two of our mos effective measures - education and prevention." The Drug Free Communities Sppor Program (DFC) is a Federal giant program, overseen by ONDCP but managed by SAMHSA that provides funding to community- based Qalitions that organize to atdress and prevent youth sbstance use under the philosophy that local drug problems require local solutions. With a small Federal investment, the DFC program doubles the amount of funding through the program's match requirement, to address youth substance use. Recent evaluation data indicate that where DFC dollars are invested, youth substance use is lower. Over the life of the DFC program, youth living in DFC communities have experienced reductions in alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana use. Grants awarded through the DFC program are intended to support established community-based coalitions capable of effecting community:level change. DFC defines a coalition as "a community- bascd formal arrangement for cooperation and collaboration among groups or sectors of a community in which each group retains its identity, but all agree to work together toward a common goal of building a safe, healthy, and drug-free community." Coalitions receiving DFC funds are expected to work with leaders within their communities to identify and address local youth substance use problems. The deadline for FY 2012 Drug Free Communities funding applications is March 22, 2012.
